Rhode Island's Share in the War 



*f The conflict of French and EngHsh interests in the Ohio 

V Valley served as the prelude, and Washington's defeat of 
i;* Jumonville near Fort Du Quesne on May 27th 1754 as the 
spark, which ignited the fourth French war in which Rhode 
i Island participated. This struggle called by European his- 
torians "The Seven Years War" is better known in America 
as "The Old French and Indian War." Military preparations 
were made in both England and France as well as in the 
Colonies. 

On January ist 1755 the Rhode Island General Assemble 
voted to raise a company of 100 men for the emergency. As 
is usual, the length and intensity of the impending struggle 
was underestimated. In February the number was increased 
to 113, apparently to allow for officers, some of whom were 
appointed. A committee of War of five men was established 
to manage the military afifairs of the Colony. 

In March 1755, before the 100 men had been enlisted, it 
was voted to raise four companies of 100 men each to take 
part in the secret expedition against Crown Point. The acts 
calling for 113 men were repealed and the officers transferred 
to the new companies. Christopher Harris was appointed 
Colonel of this expeditionary regiment. 

Meanwhile Braddock had landed in Virginia and taken 
command of the English forces in America. He planned to 
strike the French at three points. The southern army, under 
his personal command, was to attack Fort Du Quesne, and the 
northern army was to assemble at Albany, whence one detach- 
ment under Governor Shirley was to attack Niagara, while 
the other, under Colonel (later Sir) WiUiam Johnson, was to 
move against Crown Point. 

The Rhode Island regiment under Col. Harris marched 
to Green-Bush near Albany, where their boats were caulked 
. and their guns cleaned and mended. 



On August 8th, leaving the Rhode Island and New York 
regiments in camp, Johnson marched northward with the rest 
of the army. He left a garrison at Fort Lyman (afterwards 
called Fort Edward in honor of the Duke of York), and 
continuing northward encamped at the upper end of Lake 
George. The Rhode Island regiment was at Albany on 
August 24th, but soon followed the main army and reached the 
camp late in August or early in September. 

Baron Dieskau, commander of the army, which had been 
sent over from France, and which had been augmented by 
Canadians and Indians, marched southward through the 
woods east of Lake George. Upon the news of the approach 
of the French, Johnson sent out Col. Ephraim Williams and 
the Indian Chief Hendricks with a scouting party in the 
direction of South Bay on September 8th. This force was 
surprised by Dieskau, and in the fighting which followed, 
both Williams* and Hendricks were killed. Re-enforcements 
under the command of Lt. Col. Edward Cole of the Rhode 
Island regiment arrived in time to rescue the remnant of 
Williams' force and to hold the French in check temporarily, 
thus giving Johnson time to strengthen the defences of the 
camp. Dieskau attacked the camp at 10 o'clock in the 
morning (September 8, 1755), and the fighting lasted until 
four in the afternoon, when the French force was dispersed. 
Both Johnson and Dieskau were wounded, the latter being 
taken prisoner. Johnson did not pursue the fugitives, but 
fortified the camp which he named Fort WiUiam Henry in 
honor of the Duke of Gloucester, the king's grandson. 

Four Rhode Island companies took part in this battle of 
September 8, 1755, known as the Battle of Lake George. 
They were the companies commanded by Cole, Angell, Bab- 
cock and Francis. 

On account of Braddock's defeat before Fort Du Quesne, 
The General Assembly voted on August nth, to raise three 
more companies of fifty men each and to send them to 
re-enforce Col. Harris' troops, and thus strengthen the

Colonial Army against the added number of French troops, 
which being freed from service in the Monongahela Valley, 
would doubtless be rushed northward to Lake Champlain. 
This vote for additional companies was not passed without 
opposition, and seven deputies including the Speaker, had their 
dissent from the vote, recorded in the acts and resolves. John 
Whiting was ranking Captain of this detachment, which was 
recruited before September 8th, on which day the General 
Assembly ordered them to proceed to Albany by water and 
thence from Albany to the force under Col. Harris. Many of 
Col. Harris' troopers, disgusted by the hardships of the march 
overland and little realizing the scope and importance of the 
conflict had deserted. These men upon their return home 
were added to Capt. Whiting's command, and ordered to 
proceed subject to his orders until they should reach the camp 
and re-enter their respective companies. 

In September Rhode Island voted to raise four more 
companies of 50 men each. Daniel Bosworth was appointed 
ranking Captain of this third detachment. Inasmuch as the 
war was not particularly popular in Rhode Island, and as the 
danger to the Colony was not imminent, volunteers were not 
forthcoming in numbers sufficient to fill the companies that 
had been authorized, although bounties had been offered to 
encourage enlistment. Hence the General Assembly at the 
September session found it necessary to pass an act 
authorizing conscription. Thenceforth during the war the 
Rhode Island regiments consisted partly of volunteers, many 
of whom were attracted by the bounties, and partly of 
conscripts. In 1755 Rhode Island put approximately 750 men 
in the field. 

Late in November Johnson marched southward with the 
main part of the army, which either went into winter quarters 
or returned home. Seventy-two Rhode Islanders commanded 
by Capt. Whiting were left on garrison duty at the Forts near 
Lake George. The campaign of 1755 had been unfortunate 
in the Colonies. Braddock's expedition had been defeated, 
Shirley's expedition had done but little, and although Johnson 



had repelled an attack, he had not even approached Crown 
Point, his avowed objective. On December 22d the General 
Assembly voted that loo of the best men with (apparently 
13) suitable officers be selected from the troops returned and 
returning from the Expedition against Crown Point and that 
the remainder be discharged. Besides this 100 men, 72, as 
already noted, were detailed for garrison duty at Fort Edward 
and Fort William Henry, under Capt. Whiting. The remain- 
der of the troops were ordered discharged on or before 
December 31st, 1755. 

Shirley, chief commander of the English forces in 
America determined on a vigorous campaign for 1756. He 
planned to move against Niagara with one part of his force 
and to send the other part commanded by (Gen.) John 
Winslow against Lake Champlain. In February Rhode Island 
voted to raise a force of 500 men (including those still in 
service) for the reduction of the French forts on Lake 
Champlain. Col. Harris was given command of this regiment, 
which consisted of 10 companies. 

The Rhode Island troops went by water, touching at 
New York, and arriving at Albany on Friday evening. May 
14th, 1756, according to a letter of George Hopkins. The 
regiment moved to Camp Half Moon before June 29th where 
all the Rhode Island companies, except two. Major Babcock's 
and Capt. Bozerd's (Bosworth), had arrived by June nth. 
The Rhode Islanders were soon scattered, some being at Fort 
William Henry, and Edward, while others were at Stillwater, 
Camp Half Moon, and Albany. Many were still at Camp 
Half Moon on July nth but the bulk soon moved up to Fort 
Edward, where they were on July 22d and had been four 
weeks on August 14th, according to Hopkins. 

Meanwhile preparations for the campaign had been 
pushed in Europe. Louis XV sent the Marquis of Mont- 
calm to command his forces in America and George II 
sent the Earl of Loudon. On May 17th, 1756, two years 
after the defeat of Jumonville by Washington, England 
formally declared war against France. Prussia under 



Frederick the Great had made an alliance with England, and 
Austria had made an alliance with France. Europe was to 
be a more- bloody battlefield than America. Sweden, Russia 
and Poland soon joined France and Austria. 

The Earl of Loudon reached New York in July and 
relieved Shirley of the chief command. This change together 
with Loudon's inefficiency doomed the campaign of 1756 to 
failure. On July 24th Col. Angell of the Rhode Island 
regiment commanded a scouting party of 300 men that went 
out from Fort Edward towards South Bay and Wood Creek. 

The Rhode Island General Assembly, expecting a 
vigorous campaign ordered two additional companies of 50 
men each, exclusive of officers, in June. These troops were 
commanded by Captains Jenckes and Fry, and joined the 
force under Harris. 

In August Montcalm attacked and captured the English 
forts on the Oswego River and then returned to check any 
advance which might be attempted by the English at Lake 
George. 

Conditions rapidly became more threatening for the 
English colonies. Another company of 60 men and officers 
was authorized by the General Assembly in September and 
Joseph Windsor was given the command, but this company was 
merged in the new regiment of 400 men, (eight companies) 
which was ordered in October. The Governor, Stephen 
Hopkins was chosen Colonel of this, the 2nd Regiment, 
known as "The 400 men," but on October 27th the General 
Assembly met and ordered them not to march on account of 
the fact that Small Pox was rife at Albany. By orders from 
Loudon this regiment was discharged on or before Nov. 
8th 1756. 

Some of the Rhode Island troops at Fort Edward had 
been sent up to Fort William Henry where Quarter-Master 
Shehan was located on Nov. 9th, 1756. The companies 
commanded by Harris, Angell, Potter and Jenckes, returned 
to Providence in December and were paid off in December 



8 

and January. The other companies may have been discharged 
at the same time but their pay rolls have not been located. 

The defeat of the English at Oswego vv^a^s the only 
noteworthy feature of the campaign of 1756. Several Newport 
shipwrights who were on special construction service at 
Oswego were captured by the French. 

In February 1757 Rhode Island ordered a five company 
regiment of 450 men to assist Loudon in the ensuing 
campaign. Samuel Angell was appointed "Chief Officer" 
(i. e. Colonel) of this force which in May proceeded to 
Albany. Meanwhile in March the French under Rigaud 
attempted unsuccessfully to surprise Fort William Henry, 
and Loudon prepared his futile expedition against Louisburg. 

In May an act for raising 150 more men was passed by 
the Rhode Island General Assembly at its May session, but 
was repealed in August before the companies were raised. 
Some of the Rhode Islanders under Angell were stationed 
at Fort Edward, while others were at Fort William Henry. 

Montcalm had not been idle during the spring, but had 
collected a large force with the main part of which he sailed 
up Lake George, while the balance of the force under De Levis 
marched along the west shore of the Lake. Fort William 
Henry was surrounded by the French but held out until 
word was received from Gen. Webb, who was stationed at 
Fort Edward, that he would not send assistance. Munro, the 
commander of Fort William Henry was therefore obliged to 
surrender on August 9th, 1757. A large number of the 
English soldiers were massacred by the Indians on August 
loth, although about 600 refugees succeeded in reaching Fort 
Edward. 

Col. Angell who was at Fort Edward wrote to Governor 
Greene on August 14th and described the attack on Fort 
William Henry in the following words : 

"On the 3d inst., at five o'clock, in the morning, the fort 
and camp were invested by Canadians and Indians ; and at 
the same time, a large body of boats and canoes appeared on 
the lake near, while our camp was attacked by a superior 



number of the enemy. They landed their artillery the same 
day. Our rangers brought in one of their lieutenants prisoner, 
who gave account of their strength consisted of three thousand 
regulars, five thousand Canadians, and three thousand five 
hundred savages, thirty-six cannon, and four mortars. 

"The siege continued obstinate till the ninth day at six 
o'clock in the morning, when all the cannon, bigger than 
twelve pounders, were broken ; the men in camp and garrison, 
spent with fatigue. They capitulated on honorable terms, viz. : 
that they should march to this place with a brass twelve 
pounder in the front, and their fire-locks clubbed, and colors 
flying, with all their baggage. This was agreed to, and 
articles signed. General Montcalm and other principal officers 
of his army, expressed and acknowledged that they had made 
a defence beyond expectation, and for those reasons, he 
allowed them as good terms as General Blakeney had. The 
articles obliged our men not to bear arms till eighteen months 
were expired. 

"The morning following, our men were to march with a 
strong guard of regulars, to keep the savages from insulting 
them. When our people began to draw up for a march, the 
horrible scene of massacre then began, by the savages scalping 
our sick and wounded men ; next, by their drawing out all 
the black men, scalping the Indians and keeping the negroes 
for slaves. All this did not satisfy them; but they went to 
stripping and scalping without distinction ; which put our men 
to the flight, each man for himself — having no protection 
agreeably to the articles. They all scattered in the woods ; the 
Indians following them several miles. Our men have been 
coming in since eleven o'clock, that day, till this morning, by 
single persons and small parties; not a man but is stripped; 
some, quite naked. 

"There are yet behind several hundred; many of whom, 
it is known, are sick, and many, it is thought, will perish in 
the woods. This minute, a deserter from the French says 
that above two hundred of our men went back to the French 
for protection. 



10 

"By our parties just came in, we have certain accounts 
that the fort is destroyed ; and that the enemy are drawing 
off. We have about four thousand militia here, and two 
thousand troops." 

The danger by which Fort William Henry was threatened 
greatly alarmed the Colony. The General Assembly met on 
August loth, and not as yet having heard of the loss of Fort 
William Henry, passed an act which drafted one sixth of the 
militia of the colony, probably about looo men, for service in 
the relief of Fort William Henry. Col. John Andrews was 
given the command of this regiment. On August 15th thirty- 
four prominent men of Providence who were not subject to 
the draft volunteered their services and signed a paper of 
that import. Of a muster roll of 113 men who marched out 
of Newport County in answer to this call, 21 were volunteers. 

This Second Rhode Island regiment went no farther than 
Connecticut, when news was received that Fort William 
Henry had fallen. The men returned home and the October 
Assembly after regulating their pay for this service, voted to 
re-enlist 250 men for service in the army during the pleasure 
of the General Assembly. 

Ninety of these did garrison service at Saratoga. Capt. 
Ebenezer Whiting was given the command of those who were 
garrisoned at Fort Edward during the winter. 

If the campaign of 1756 had disheartened the English, 
that of 1757 was still more discouraging. The expedition 
against Louisburg had come to naught. Fort William Henry 
had been lost, and from Europe came the still more 
discouraging news that the Duke of Cumberland had been 
decisively defeated by D'Estrees. 

As well as sending the quota to the Colonial contingent, 
Rhode Island had strengthened and garrisoned Fort George 
at Newport, and had also equipped and sent forth many 
privateers which had made severe and telling inroads upon the 
enemy's maritime commerce. 

The following letter gives a concise description of the 
conditions in the Colony in 1758; 



ii 

"We the Commissioners from the Government of Rhode 
Island, being ordered to lay before your Lordship, an exact 
State of the Colony, with Regard to its Fortifications and 
Military Stores, the Number of Inhabitants, the State of the 
Treasury, and Funds for supplying the same, beg Leave to 
represent to your Lordship, that there is only one Fortification 
in the Colony, called Fort George, very conveniently situated 
for the Defence of the Town and Harbour of Newport, which 
is the Metropolis of the Colony. But as there are in the Fort 
only twenty-six Carriage Guns fit for Service, and a few 
other Military Stores, it is to be feared the Town might be 
entirely destroyed by a very small Force, and the Colony 
thereby disabled from raising any more Men for the common 
Cause. And of what fatal Consequence it might be to His 
Majesty's Interest, to have the Enemy in Possession of so 
fine a Harbour and Island, situate in the Midst of New 
England, we leave your Lordship to judge. 

"By an Account of the Number of Men in the Colony, 
taken the 24th of December, One Thousand Seven Hundred 
and Fifty-five, it appears, my Lord, there were then in the 
Colony, Eight Thousand Two Hundred and Sixty-two Men, 
able to bear Arms. But as we have since lost many Men by 
the War, and near Fifteen Hundred Men are out in our Priva- 
teers, we imagine there is not near that Number now left in 
the Colony." 

In March, 1758, the General Assembly voted to raise a 
regiment of 1000 men. Col. Malbone was given the command 
of this regiment, which was to consist of nine new companies 
and the company under Capt. Ebenezer Whiting, which was in 
garrison service at the Forts. Malbone was succeeded by 
Henry Babcock as Colonel, before the regiment moved. The 
troops went to Albany by water. During March and April a 
detachment of 1853 of His Majesty's regulars were quartered 
at Providence before being sent against Louisburg. In May, 
Amherst, with the northern army, supported by the fleet, 
marched on Louisburg; in June, Forbes, with the southern 
army, proceeded against Fort Du Quesne; and on July 5th 
Abercrombie, with 15,000 English and Colonials, including the 



12 



Rhode Island companies, except those under Potter and Wall, 
moved against Ticonderoga. Col. Babcock's description of the 
Battle of Ticonderoga, being that of an eye witness and 
important officer, follows : 

"Lake George, loth July, 1758, 

"Honored Sir:— The 5th inst., the army consisting of 
fifteen thousand men, proceeded down the lake, in batteaux, 
with thirty days' provision. The 6th, in the morning, half 
after eight, we landed at the advance guard ; who were very 
easily driven from their post, with no loss on our side, and but 
four on theirs. About two o'clock, P. M., the whole army 
marched, saving a battalion of the York regiment, who were 
posted as a guard on our batteaux. About three o'clock we 
were attacked by a party of the enemy, in which engagement 
we unfortunately lost the brave Lord Howe. There were taken 
of the enemy one hundred prisoners, eight of whom were 
officers; our army was much scattered by reason of the firing 
m the woods, and it was thought advisable to return tha't 
evening to our batteaux. 

"The next day Col. Broadstreet was ordered with fifteen 
hundred batteaux men, and two regular regiments, with five 
of the Massachusetts regiments, to take possession of the saw 
mill, which we did, without the loss of a man. The same 
evening, the whole marched up to the saw mill. 

"The 8th, (the fatal 8th,) were ordered to proceed in the 
following manner: the batteaux men, light armed infantry, and 
the rangers, were ordered to form a line about two hundred 
yards from the French entrenchments ; which extended from 
Lake George to Lake Champlain ; the regulars were to form a 
Ime behind the first line ; who, after they were formed were to 
pass through the first line, they making avenues for them; 
after that, they were to form the line again. A captain and 
fifty men, out of the line, were detached for picket, who were 
to form in front ; the grenadiers were to form behind them ; 
and in this manner, they were to attack the trenches, and were 
to march with shouldered firelocks, till they should get on top 
of the trenches. 

"They accordingly marched on with great intrepidity, but 



13 

were received so warmly, that they were obliged to give 
ground, after making most vigorous efforts; they even went up 
to the breast-work, but were knocked down so fast, that it was 
very difficult for those behind to get over the dead and 
wounded. But before the attack of the regulars, the enemy 
began with firing upon the Yorkers. In the rear of the regu- 
lars, the Connecticut, New Jersey and Rhode Island troops 
were ordered to form about three hundred yards behind, who 
were to support them, if necessary. 

"About an hour after the attack, I was ordered to march 
with the regiment, to relieve those that had been engaged. We 
went up within about forty yards of the breast-work. Soon 
after I got up, in posting my regiment to the best advantage 
I could, I received a shot in my left knee; after that, finding 
myself of no advantage, I ordered two men to carry me ofif, 
and left the regiment warmly engaged. We have lost no offi- 
cers. Capt. John Whiting, Lieuts. Russell and Smith are 
slightly wounded. The return of the killed and wounded, 
Your Honor has enclosed. 

"The same evening, to my great surprise, the whole army 
was ordered to return to the batteaux, to the great mortifica- 
tion of chief of the officers ; and the next evening we arrived 
here. 

"Never did an army gain more advantage in so little time, 
whilst the late Lord Howe was alive ; but soon after that, we 
became a confused rabble. We have lost a great many brave 
officers ; in Lord Howe's regiment, all the field officers were 
killed. 

"Sir William Johnson joined us four hours before the 
engagement ; but the Indians not being used to attack trenches, 
soon came off." 

Lord Howe, the brains of the English army, was killed in 
this fight, and the incompetent Abercrombie retreated to Fort 
William Henry, turning a potential victory into an unneces- 
sary defeat. In August Col. Bradstreet marched to Oswego 
with 3000 men, of whom 312 were Rhode Islanders under Lt. 
Col. Potter and Major Wall. This expedition captured Fort 
Frontenac on August 25th, destroyed the French naval power 



14 

on Lake Ontario, and cut the communication between Fort 
Du Quesne and Canada, thus materially assisting the southern 
army under Forbes, which so seriously threatened Fort Du 
Quesne in November, that the garrison destroyed the fortress 
and retreated. Meanwhile, in the North, Amherst had taken 
Louisburg. 

Some of the Rhode Island soldiers were retained in ser- 
vice for the campaign of I7.S9, and a call for new enlistments 
was made in December, 1758. 

On February 26th, 1759, the Colony voted to furnish 1000 
men for the ensuing campaign, and later the Assembly ordered 
the thirteen companies already raised to proceed to Albany. 
Some were sent by boat, while others marched overland, the 
rendezvous being ordered for April loth. The quota of 1000 
men was not easily raised, and in May a bonus of two months' 
pay was offered for enlistments. Bonuses were also offered to 
seamen who should enlist in H. M. navy. 

In June a second detachment was sent, and an act to 
raise 115 men to complete the regiment was ordered. Amherst 
spent the summer and autumn in preparations, and when he 
was ready to move northward, the season had become too cold. 
A small English force under Prideaux drove the French from 
Niagara, but the remainder of the army operating in the Colo- 
nies accomplished nothing. Meanwhile in Canada Wolfe had 
brilliantly defeated Montcalm on September i8th, Quebec 
became English, 

In February, 1760, the Colony voted to raise 1000 men 
for the Canadian Expedition. Christopher Harris was made 
Colonel, and proceeding to Albany, joined the force under 
Lord Amherst. Many of the soldiers, fearing the hardships of 
a campaign against so distant a place as Montreal, deserted on 
the way to Albany. Amherst advanced with his main force 
through Oswego, across Ontario and down the St. Lawrence. 
Murray came up the river from Quebec, while Haviland with 
many Colonials, including the Rhode Island contingent, 
approached down Lake Champlain. On Sept. 8th, 1760, Mont- 
real surrendered to the English, and immediately many of the 
Colonial troops "demobilized themselves" and returned home. 



15 

The Rhode Islanders were very weary of the war, whose 
military campaig^n had made heavy levies of both men and 
money, and although adding Canada to the English domains 
had been of scant benefit to the Colony. The war itself, on 
account of the enormous profits made by the privateering enter- 
prises, was rather popular with the maritime interests. 

In March, 1761, the General Assembly voted to raise 666 
men for the ensuing campaign. These men were to serve until 
November first unless the campaign ended previously. John 
Whiting was made Colonel. The commissioned officers, as 
was the custom, had to enlist a certain number of men in order 
to qualify for their commission. The campaign was for the 
most part garrison duty. In October Col. Whiting and a com- 
pany of 66 men were detailed to garrison Fort Stanwix, and 
the rest of the Rhode Islanders returned to Albany and thence 
by water to Providence. 

In February, 1762, the Colony voted to raise 666 men for 
the year's campaign. In March an act was passed to raise 178 
men for H. M. regular army. Samuel Rose was made Colonel 
of the Rhode Island regiment. The first detachment was hur- 
ried to New York in May and shipped to Cuba. The Rhode 
Island contingent was commanded by Lt. Col. Hargill and con- 
sisted of (187 or, as some accounts say, 210 men), being the 
first detachments of the companies under Hargill, Fry, and 
Russell. The remainder of the regiment, the second detach- 
ment, went to Albany under Col. Rose. Havana was captured 
by the Colonial and Regular troops on August 13th, 1762. and 
the Rhode Islanders returned home in November, having lost 
about half their number through sickness and battle. Another 
179 men enlisted in H. M. regular army during the latter part 
of 1762 and early part of 1763. Capt. Cornell with 66 men 
served at Fort Stanwix during the winter of 1762-63, but were 
disbanded in July, 1763. 

In the later years of the war the English arms had been 
successful not only in Canada and the West Indies, but also 
in India, where Clive was laying the foundations for a large 
empire. On the European battlefield, too, England and her 
allies had finally obtained the ascendency, Sweden and Russia 



i6 

having withdrawn from the conflict. These conquests had but 
little effect upon Rhode Island, who found herself, upon the 
declaration of peace, facing the problems of reorganization 
with her chief source of income (privateering) abruptly cut 
off, and her population and wealth sorely depleted by the late 
war. 

On Tuesday, February 8th, 1763, the King's Proclamation 
of Peace was publicly read in Rhode Island. 



In February, 1755, a Committee of War consisting of five 
members was constituted, and given the control and direction 
of the military activities of the Colony. The membership of 
this board was augmented from time to time, and continued 
to exercise its important functions throughout the war, 
although subject to the resolutions of the General Assembly, 
which created it. 

Councils of War were held occasionally but were of local 
rather than of general importance. They consisted of the 
Governor and Deputy Governor, the Assistants from the town, 
and the Colonels, Lieutenant-Colonels, Majors, and Captains or 
those acting as such, of the militia companies of the County 
in which the Council was held. When at Newport the Cap- 
tain of Fort George was also included. 

The size of the companies varied from fifty to one hun- 
dred men, and the regiments from five to thirteen companies, 
as the exigencies of the situation demanded. Each regiment 
was commanded by a Colonel, with his staff, consisting of a 
Lieutenant-Colonel, a Major, and an Adjutant. Usually each 
regiment had a Chaplain, a Commissary, and a Surgeon. In 
some campaigns a Deputy-Commissary, a Quartermaster, a 
Sutler, an Assistant Surgeon, and an Armorer were attached 
to the regiment. In no campaigns did two Rhode Island regi- 
ments operate in the same expedition. In the campaign of 
1762 the Rhode Island regiment was divided into two detach- 
ments, the one operating about Albany being under the Colonel, 
and the one taking part in the siege of Havana being under 
the Lieutenant-Colonel. 



17 

Each company had a Captain, a Lieutenant and an Ensign 
and in some campaigns a Second Lieutenant also. The first, 
second and third companies were (except in the campaign of 
1755) under the command of the Colonel, the Lieutenant- 
Colonel and the Major, respectively. The First Lieutenant of 
each of these three companies was often styled Captain-Lieu-
